THE parole board today failed to make a final decision on whether or not to grant early release to Cardross driver Thomas Towle.Towle has served his minimum sentence of seven years jail after hitting a group of teenagers on a remote farm road near Cardross, south of the city, in February 2006.
Six teens were killed and four others were badly injured in the night-time crash.
The parole board has now met four times to discuss Towle's bid for release, which can occur from this weekend.
"The board interviewed Thomas Towle at a hearing conducted today,'' the board said in a statement.
"At the conclusion of the meeting, the board adjourned his case to a date to be fixed pending further inquiries and the receipt of additional information to assist the board in its decision-making.''
Towle was sentenced to 10 years jail with a minimum of seven years after being found guilty of dangerous driving causing death and dangerous driving causing serious injury.
Various court hearings were told Towle, now 41, had his four-year-old son on his lap when he crashed into the group of teenagers.
